Hugo Schwyzer and Michael Kimmel are Now MRAs!


Hugo Schwyzer and Michael Kimmel are Now MRAs!
Hugo Schwyzer and Michael Kimmel, professors at Pasadena City College and SUNY Stony Brook, respectively, have decided to turn their coats, and their backs, on feminism. These erstwhile staunch pillars of what is called the pro-feminist men's movement, will henceforth be contributing their professorial gravitas and savvy to the pro-male men's movement instead. The two have informed me in confidence that they will stay on in their teaching posts as though nothing had changed, yet will, as Kimmel put it to me recently, "work to undermine the feminist agenda by subterfuge, merely pretending to support it while planting mixed messages between the lines."

Schwyzer in particular has confided to me his "complex feelings of guilt" for all of the time he has spent boosting feminism and "filling the minds of young men and women with dreck." He then quoted an obscure passage from the book of Ephesians, which I forgot to make note of, and concluded with the statement that "a great weight has departed from my shoulders -- almost like casting off a worthless bag of rocks!"

As you will surely remark, we have not failed to use the occasion as a photo opportunity. However, I would ask you, my readers, to keep this in confidence. Okay? We don't want to blow Mike and Hugo's cover, see?
